Jennifer Coker Goes Above & Beyond

“The purchasing department, the business office and the school district would not run properly without Jennifer Coker.” Those were the comments from Teri Burress, who nominated Jennifer for the Above and Beyond Award. Teri told of one example of Jennifer going above and beyond. “The postage meter quit functioning recently and we had mail to get out,” said Burress. “Jennifer went to the post office, purchased stamps and spent nearly two hours applying the stamps to make sure t...he mail got out.” That’s the kind of dedication and commitment Jennifer Coker has to this
district.

Jennifer is assistant buyer at the Burnett Center. She handles requisitions, purchase orders and travel for district staff. She’s been an important part of the school district for the past eight years. When told she was the April Above and Beyond winner, she was very surprised. “It’s kind of exciting, actually,” she said.
Thank you for your continued dedication to Topeka Public Schools, Jennifer!
